I am always hearing him rearranging things down there- so your comment made me wonder if he is clearing out the dirty spots. His food store must be massive by now as well, as I just keep feeding him to try and gain his trust.

From what i have seen I think he has made a tunnel right under one side of his cage which is under one of those multi chamber houses, and blocked off another house and tunnel I put to the right of the multichamber. He spent 2 hours doing all of that as soon as he arrived, he obviously wanted it in a set way as he made a lot of noise doing it, I think he was getting tired and grumpy because it was the middle of the day when he arrived. What was funny was the rescue left him with his house from his previous cage because she said he was very partial to it and might take him a while to move out of, he didn't give it a secong glance, he moved straight into his new home.

The last 2 nights i have tempted him into a tiny box and carried him to the sofa and he has sat on my chest, so after your comment I thought I would try him with some bath tub bonding, i thought he would freak out, but he was into everything. Still dubious about my hands, but slowly getting there. But as soon as I put him back in his cage, he runs back to his house, but then pops out again a few mins later, do you think his house is just his security blanket? sorry i have written loads!!!

Thanks Vossey, i think you might be right, once he relaxes enough to let his character shine, I am sure he will be into everything.

Thanks again all for the lovely comments.

Twinkle DSC_0001.jpg

Thought it was time to give you all an update on Twinkle. Well, he was a scaredy cat for the first month and a half, any sound, any movement when he first came out of his house he would shoot off back into his house and not be seen again! But the last 2 weeks I have noticed this doesn't really happen anymore. He definitely is one of my more 'fragile natured' hamsters. But he is so lovely, never ever bitten me, never trys to bite really. I just don't think it is in his nature.

He loves being out and free roaming, on occasion daring to climb up me and give me a bit of attention.

He really doesn't like open palms that much, but will climb on to them to come out. If you make a fist he doesn't care, it's just when they are open flat.

I would say in his own way he is as nuts as my crazy females, who told me to get a male hamster so they don't wear me out as much as my females - was it you Ria? well, let me tell you, once he is awake there is no stopping him... ummm.... why do i remember my old male hamsters being such plodders...

anyhow, I love him soooooo much and I call him Mr Twinkle Toes or the fluff monster, I swear he is getting fluffier by the day. When he first wakes up he looks like he has had an electric shock, I must try and get a really good photo of him when he is like that.


I lost my care in my home as I am self isolating so not managed to post/read as much on here as normal. Anyway, hope you are all staying safe and managing to occupy your time at the moment.

Take care all. x

I was waiting for an update on Twinkle. He's a gorgeous hamster and i just watched his videos again.

Don't think it was me who told you to get a male hamster but my memory is bad so could have been.

I love your set ups and Twinkle looks very cosy and at home in his habitat. He's a very lucky hamster to be living with you.
